Week Ending 10th November 2013 / Albums Chart

Florent Pagny gets his seventh Number One album as Vieillir Avec Toi is new at the top with 42,248 copies sold. His six chart-toppers were Savoir Aimer (for two weeks in November 1997), RéCréation (for one week in October 1999), Châtelet Les Halles (for one week in November 2000), Ailleurs Land (for seven weeks in April and May 2003), Baryton (for three weeks in November and December 2004), and Tout Et Son Contraire (for one week in November 2010).

So The Marshall Mathers LP 2 is not Eminem‘s third Number One, the album debuts at two with 39,395 sales. Encore (for one week in November 2004), and Relapse (for one week in May 2009) reached the top. Good news for Eminem : his last studio album Recovery also entered (and peaked) at number two in June 2010, but with only 13,600 CDs sold.

Loved Me Back To Life is new at number three for Céline Dion (30,597 sales). We can notice that her last “French” album Sans Attendre was much more successful in its first week, reaching the top with 95,569 copies sold. But we can add that her last “American” LP Taking Chances sold 29,380 CDs when it debuted and peaked at number two in November 2007, so it’s not a bad week for the Canadian singer.

After ten non-consecutive weeks at the top, Stromae‘s Racine Carrée is down to four with 26,895 sales (-6%), the album has sold 531,880 copies in its 12 weeks inside the top 10. Eddy Mitchell enters at number five with Héros (16,569 sales). His last studio album Come Back entered at the top in October 2010 with 17,100 CDs sold.

In its third week inside the ten best-sellers, the album Forever Gentlemen falls four places at six (14,175 sales / -27%), the LP has sold 55,528 copies so far. Løve slips three at number seven for Julien Doré in its second week on the chart (9,800 sales / -27%).

Encore Quelques Mots D’Amour is Frank Michael‘s second top 10 album in 2013 as it debuts at eight (9,400 sales), Quelques Mots D’Amour reached number six in June. In his second week in the top 10, Grand Corps Malade moves down four places at nine with Funambule. French rapper Hayce Lemsi gets his first top 10 album as his Electron Libre climbs a massive 213 places at ten in its second week on the chart (7,100 sales).

Six albums drop out of the top 10 this week. Last week’s new entry at eight, the compilation NRJ Dance 2013 is down to number eleven. After two weeks inside the top 10, James Blunt falls five places at twelve with Moon Landing. The musical Robin Des Bois moves down eight at number 14 in its 33rd week on the chart. It’s down twelve places at 15 for Arcade Fire‘s Reflektor after just one week inside the ten best-sellers. Katy Perry falls eight at number 17 with Prism in her third week in the top 20. In its third week on the chart, the compilation Le Son Dancefloor 2014 moves down ten places at 20.

Sexion D’Assaut‘s Best Of enters at 13 with 6,100 copies sold, it’s their fourth top 20 album, after L’Ecole Des Points Vitaux (number two in May and July 2010), En Attendant L’Apogée – Les Chroniques Du 75 (number three in April 2011), and L’Apogée (Number One for five weeks from March to June 2012).

James Arthur‘s eponymous debut album is new at number 21 (5,000 sales). It’s a disappointing new entry for another eponymous LP, Avril Lavigne only enters at 30 (4,000 sales). Only her debut album Let Go didn’t reach the top 10, peaking at 13 in October 2002. The Best Damn Thing was number three in April 2007, and both Under My Skin (in May 2004) and Goodbye Lullaby (in March 2011) reached number four.

Have a great week !
